'''Gold''' (Japanese: '''ゴールド''' ''Gold'') is a [[Pokédex holder|main character]] in the manga series [[Pokémon Adventures]].
 
==Character==
Gold grew up in a home full of baby Pokémon. His neighbors in [[New Bark Town]] refer to his family as the "Poké House". He usually wears a pair of goggles and travels on a scooter. Instead of throwing/kicking his Poké Balls, he uses a billiard cue to shoot them out, allowing for tactical maneuvers and deployments of his Pokémon. Gold's hobbies include gambling, skateboarding, and trying foods from different cities. His favorite idol/DJ is [[DJ Mary]] from the {{ci|Goldenrod}} Radio Station.
 
{{adv|Professor Oak}} noted that while {{adv|Red}} had some odd habits, Gold is much more immature and mischievous. He likes playing billiards, but sometimes he may use his Pokémon to cheat. Gold's mother has described him as "careless". Gold also tends to lie or exaggerate at times, in a bid to make himself seem more impressive, and other people around him notice it. He also seems to exhibit a one-track mind at times, being an ardent fan of pretty girls like DJ Mary, [[Jasmine]] and the [[Kimono Girls]], but failing to recognize [[Morty]] or the Johto [[Elite Four]].
 
Despite his negative traits, Gold is also noted for his moments of ingenuity, formulating plans and executing them spontaneously while appearing to slack off. Ultimately, Gold cares extremely for those around him and won't hesitate to sacrifice everything for their sake.
 
Gold's special skill, as described by {{adv|Professor Oak}}, is Pokémon hatching and is known as the "'''{{tc|Pokémon Breeder|Hatcher}}'''" ({{tt|孵す者|かえすもの}} ''Hatcher''), known as '''Breeder''' in [[Chuang Yi]]'s translations. He has the ability to draw out the largest potential of a baby Pokémon, having lived with Pokémon his whole life. [[Togebo]] and [[Pibu]] are testaments to that title.
 
==History==
==={{chap|Emerald}}===
[[File:Gold E chapter.png|thumb|left|120px|Gold during the sixth chapter]]
During the {{chap|Emerald}}, Gold, along with {{adv|Crystal}}, traveled to the {{gdis|Battle Frontier|III}} in order to bring the petrified {{adv|Red}}, {{adv|Blue}}, {{adv|Green}}, {{adv|Yellow}}, and {{adv|Silver}} out of their stone state by wishing upon the [[Mythical Pokémon]] {{padv|Jirachi}} and stop the armored man known as [[Guile Hideout]].

When he first arrived, he disguised himself as Guile Hideout, hoping to trick the real one's Pokémon into letting him get to Jirachi. This plan failed however and Gold was forced to use the ultimate {{type|Fire}} attack, {{m|Blast Burn}}, which Gold learned on [[Two Island]] thanks to the help of [[Ultima]]. This becomes the first attack the villain's reflective sword could not deflect. He also later adds that learning the technique, unlike his three predecessors and those to follow, took two whole months.
 
In ''[[PAORAS20|Omega Alpha Adventure 20]]'', Gold, along with Crystal and Silver, was called by Emerald to ask for assistance in destroying a giant [[Grand Meteor Delta|meteoroid]] threatening to destroy the world. During the call, Gold revealed that [[Norman]] was with them after he had been accidentally left behind in Johto.
